Alongside its Mediterranean platters, Jordan Valley Restaurant serves up ample hospitality. The restaurant strives to be a social space where friends and new acquaintances can mingle amongst Middle Eastern spices, or chat on the porch over hookahs. The kitchen’s staples include kebabs, gyros, and a variety of pitas filled with kafta, tandoori chicken, or meatballs.
Located inside the sprawling 28-court Roger Scott Tennis Complex, Get a Grip Pro Shop prepares players for on-court superiority with bags, strings, towels, and rackets from brands such as Prince, Babolat, and Wilson.

For more than 25 years, the technicians at Bikes Plus have enabled smooth zooming by stocking new bikes and servicing cycles of all makes and models. With the addition of new location on Palafox Street, they now sharpen their skills at three locations alongside factory technicians several times per year, channeling newfound knowledge into repairs and tune-ups that keep two-wheelers healthy and humming. Customers can also take advantage of staff expertise as they scour racks of rides such as Scott bikes and Fuji cycles. Those already in possession of rides can accentuate them with accessories such as lights and locks, which prevent bikes from being hijacked by someone fleeing a unicyclist.
The surfing and skating savants at Innerlight spread outdoor sporting enthusiasm through a wide selection of lessons and beachside merchandise. Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) synthesizes the buoyant balance of surfing and self-propulsion of canoeing to form a single aquatic super-sport. Led by an American Red Cross–certified instructor, the one-hour private lesson hones pupils with boardborne basics. Students learn stable-paddling techniques, ocean-safety skills, and how to read the tides for good conditions without reading goggles. SUP riders receive a paddle and a height- and weight-appropriate board for use during the lesson, with training wheels available upon request.
